MaShana (muh-shay-nuh) has been hugely helpful in both the curation of the conference and the scholarship program. Here are some words to introduce her:
What’s been your favourite moment as an IA (so far)?
CONTEXT and STRUCTURE–both very important concepts that are necessary for living in our society. Being able to turn someone’s grand ideas into a useful and usable product. Looking at the world with a different lens or eye.
What made you decide to volunteer for IAC?
Vanessa Foss! She just has a way of pulling you. No really, I’ve attended the IAC for many years now, and thought it was time for me to give back to the community that has given me so much—a great opportunity, invaluable resources, a wider network and community, access to experts, career advice, and so much knowledge.
What does the theme mean to you – what are you hoping to see, hear, sense or share in New Orleans?
IA is all about making sense of the world around us. Simplifying things and making them useful and usable within the context of our lives or moments within it. I’m hoping to gain a deeper understanding of how as a project manager I can help my team do their job better and to not just make cool digital products and spaces.
